Hugo's House Of Horrors

Hugo's House Of Horrors

Hugo's House Of Horrors, made by David P. Gray in 1994, is a great game. As Hugo, you explorea large spooky mansion, trying to save your girlfriend Penelope.

Gameplay:
In HHH, you basically walk around, talk to different characters and get different items.This is what makes the gameplay so great and with a good Sierra-style interface, you can't go wrong. The parser has quite a wide vocabulary, and typing certain things can get quite an interesting response. ;)

Control:
Simple and perfect. You use the up, down, left and right keys to move around. The only problem is Hugo sometimes moves too slowly.

Sound/Music
Beep-Boop-Dd-d-d-d. The sound is quite horrible. The music playing when you are in front of the mansion is okay, but even that gets repetetive after a while.

Replay:
A pretty short game, but good. Without a walkthrough it might take you a while, but most of the puzzles aren't too hard to figure out.

Graphics:
The graphics mostly look good, and they suit the style of the game. Inside the house, you can tell what the rooms and everything else is supposed to be. Hugo looks pretty blocky, though.

Overall:
9/10
If you like Sierra-Style adventures, you will like this. Download it, now![/b]

HHH is a great game. However Hugo 2 and 3 suck. They are even more unrealistic. I mean come on, in hugo 2 where you dial on the phone and are instantly warped to another planet?!

I wasn't too keen on Hugo 2 either, but 3 was okay.

Hugo 3 was great! I like it better than 1, the elephant part was tricky tho. You had to have fast fingies!

I love Hugo's House of Horrors. Its catchy. Only one problem, I Really Don't like the Dos version! You can Download HHH For Windows Free! (Not that i dislike dos! :angel: ) The Windows version has way better Graphics an has MIDI Throuou the entire game. The Areas are exactly the same and it runs in a window And has mouse dpaintand click interface! But its not any different that affects gameplay. Runs Smoother too. But my final conclusion: DOS version- 6/10 Win Version- 9/10

Do some googleing to find it! (2 and 3 for windows ya have to pay though)
There's Bloogs, and there's snails.
Whats Up with that?!?
